How can genetics be used in clinic with my patients? Can genetic information really improve outcomes? Genetic testing is constantly changing. How can I keep up?
Precision Medicine for Your Practice is an educational program developed by Scripps Health, the American Medical Association (AMA), and The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) to help clinicians answer these questions. In each module, you will have the opportunity to:
Practice applying genetic information to realistic cases
Assess the utility of genetic information
Learn about benefits and limitations of new genetic tests
This on-demand, interactive program is a series of 8 modules that are 15 –30 minutes, case-based and aim to build clinical skills and impact patient care. Topics include prenatal testing, targeted therapy in oncology, genomic sequencing, neurogenomics and pharmacogenomics. The modules are designated for continuing medical education (CME) and continuing nursing education (CE) credit.
The American Medical Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The American Medical Association designates this enduring material for a maximum of 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. This continuing nursing education activity was approved by the Northeast Multi-State Division (NE-MSD), an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
Exome Testing for Diagnosis
Practice identifying patients who may benefit from exome testing and communicating with patients, families, and genetic experts about testing.
